WOW! I loved this book...I read it when I was 17 and loved it so much I forced my mother to read it. She doesnt even like the supernatural genre but she could not stop raveing about the book. That summer she gave it to my grandmother a die-hard sci-fi fan who read it reluctantly and loved it. We never agree on anything, but this book had us all excited and waiting for a sequal. A great read...I LOVED IT!
